Former minister and Twitter rabble-rouser Oby Ezekwesilly and members of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement met the Attorney-General Abubakar Malami yesterday.
After asking the minister to release a fact-finding report of a committee that looked into the circumstances surrounding the abduction of the over 200 Chibok schoolgirls by Boko Haram terrorists and the failure to rescue them, the BBOG group, led by Ezekwesilly and has been campaigning for their release, switched to demanding “bring back our soldiers” who were jailed for cowardice in the war against the insurgents.
Watch the encounter here:
As the minister tried to explain that the soldiers were tried and sentenced and the government has commuted their death sentence to imprisonment, Ezekwesilly resorted to shouting over him that it was “unjust”. She claimed that the soldiers’ leaders were “evil” to them. Malami, to his credit, was a picture of professionalism, and calmly interjected asking “Dr, let me talk”.
Ezekwesilly’s loud and uncouth behaviour is a discredit to the Chibok girls and she is doing them no favours whatsoever by acting like a nutcase.
